Hi 

 

Very new to Shopify sites and attempting to plan out shipping options. 

I currently have an account with Australia Post to manage my shipping on another site. Is a paid integrated app needed to process any shipping calculations on Shopify?   Is there a way to calculate shipping options etc on the  site that integrates with Australia Post, that doesn't have a monthly fee in USD charged?  The ones I have found so far range anywhere from $9USD to $19USD a month.   Sendle isn't an option as they don't collect or deliver where I am. 

 

Thanks

Hello @AuthorAngel ,

 

Shopify's shipping options currently do not include Australia Post; instead, it exclusively offers Sendle.

 

To incorporate Australia Post services into your store and display carrier-calculated rates at checkout, you'll need to install a dedicated app.  Additionally, ensure that CCS (Carrier Calculated Shipping) is enabled on your store for this functionality.

 

Alternatively, you can opt for Shopify's Flat Rate Shipping options at checkout. This provides approximate rates during checkout and doesn't necessitate CCS activation.

 

To generate shipping labels, you can visit your Australia Post account and manually update the tracking number to fulfill orders. As your order volume grows, consider using an app to automate the Australia Post checkout rates and order fulfillment label processes.

Hey there! In this case you'll need to get a third-party app to manage the link between Shopify and Australia Post. Starshipit is a good option as it allows you to keep your existing Australia Post rates, without any per-shipment or per-label charges for orders. You also get access to a few other useful tools like the ability to customise your notifications etc.
